    Lack of mental fortitude is an apt word to use in this instance (defeat to Aussies in '07 semi final). But to call it a choke is a joke.

    Proteas were never in a position to win the game. I consider it a choke if a team is in a position to win the game and then squanders it. That clearly wasn't the case so it sounds a bit premature to me when people call this particular defeat a choke.
    Prince EWS and zorax like this.

    They weren't in a position to win the game because they choked under the pressure and made 120 or whatever it was.

    Was Chanderpaul dropped from the ODI team or did he retire? I suspect he's still good enough to be selected in the team..

    Yeah dropped. I've made this argument too. I saw the logic back when it happened, particularly as it seemed unlikely he'd still playing at the next World Cup (ie. now) but I think he'd a lot to the current side.
